The Miller's tale starts with three main characters: Nicholas(astronomy student), John(owner of the house) and Alisoun(18-year-old wife of John).
Hahahahah now what!
Nicholas and Alisoun fell in love and made out a plan so John would think lots of rain was coming so they would have to sleep in tubes so they wouldn't drown. They planned this so they could sleep together without John knowing.
The plan worked out and they got in the room but suddenly, Absolon(another lover and clerk) reached the window and asked for a kiss from her but instead, he kissed Alisoun's butt.
Absolon got upset and walked back to town to get a hot stick and get his revenge, but instead of Alisoun's butt Nicholas showed his through the window and got hurt.
Nicholas screamed and John thought it was the water and the tube fell with him inside making a lot of noise.
The carpenter told the story to the townspeople and Nicholas and Alisoun said that the carpenter was just mad. The townspeople laughed at them.
